    At this point I can't decide. I am between Chespin and Froakie, but at the end of the day I will base it on the line as a whole. Since last gen I was a fan of Snivy until I saw the entire line and then just have not cared for it since well Serperior at least...

    They look better as a whole then Gen V, but only time will tell.

      I don't know if anybody has already said this or not but I have a theory about Fennekin's name:

      Fennec + Kinesis

      So, I think it will be a Fire/Psychic type.

      Anyway, I'm choosing Chespin, just because I always go with Grass starters (except in G/S/C).

          Judging by how they designed the starers, I think the evolution will look pretty good

            I don't like how the new starters look. I typically pick fire types as my starter anyways, so most likely I would choose Fennekin.

              There really isn't much to say about them. The designs seem rushed and both the fire and water starters seem to have had their features stretched to a degree in which it they are no longer eye appealing. Besides, is it just me or that Fire fox looks kind of like Zorua? :/

              For the first time after 5 generations of pokemon, I think I'll choose the water starter over the fire, even though it looks like we'll finally be able to have a fire / psychic instead of a fire / fighting (though I honestly have no trouble with those).

              Also, I think Gen VI was a bit too rushed, players were still complaining about the desings of some Gen V pokemon *cough*Vanillite*cough* when they came up with some new ones.

              I wished they'd actually take the time to go over some fan made videos and fanarts for the so expected Gen VI, there are some really good designs there they could have used.

              Still, we are still on the wait to discover the new pokemon, so I hope the designs are interesting or at least original enough to shut me up for good. In the mean time, I'll keep complaining ¬¬

                Seems like every one in this hack I see is using the avatar of that 6th gen fire starter. starting to think who they will choose to play from when 6th gen arrives.:D
                I personally like Chespin a lot due to its 50% cuteness level and 50% battle hungry nature

                I'm really hoping their final evolutions make sense to the rest of the line. I don't want something like this happening again:

                  I hope the starters are dual-type, I always wished for a part-psychic Pokemon starter, if Froakie was part-psychic I'd choose it right away despite its ugliness!

                      Honestly, this is the first generation in which I don't like the grass starter at all!

                      However, I love Fennekin and Froakie! As of now, my first choice is Froakie, but if Fennekin's evolutions are better, I'll pick Fennekin instead.

                      So far, as a whole, I'm a fan over the three starters. Chespin is probably my favorite of the three (made obvious by my current theme), but I pray, as well as for the other two, that their evolutionary line turns out well. I've seen some pretty amazing fanart so far for these three, which gives me hope GameFreak comes up with something good.

                      Tepig looked so promising in Gen V, but then it only got worse each time. Let's hope that doesn't happen again. ):

                      Something else I thought of that could work is it's a combination of Fennec and kind, the latter which is German for "child", which fits the likely origin of its Japanese name. (It's more than likely from kindle, but still XD)

                        Froakie is actually my favorite, I can imagine his third evolution already, something like this but blue.

                          or kinship or just kin. Signifying a pokemon with loyal family ties.

                          That's what I thought when I first saw Fennekin.

                          Fennekin seems to be Fennec & Kindle, that's what I'd put money on anyway.

                            I've always found it hard to judge the starters by first form. I absolutely loved Chikorita until it evolved, either time. I dislike all Gen 3 and 4. For Gen 5 I loved both Snivy and Tepig but looking at final forms Serperior and Samurott but hated Emboar.

                            As for now I will say Fennekin but I will wait until I can see the final evolved forms to make my final choice.

                              Ive started noticing that the types the pokemon have, its what they look like, for instance infernape looks exactly like a fire fighting and swampertlooks like a water ground. So im guessing chespin will be a grass fighting, the fox fire/dark and froakie looks water/poison. And is it just me or does the fox looks alike a legendary then a starter?

                                Water/Fighting

                                This is what it seems like to me, and these are my favorite starters so far.

                                  Actually, from what I can see, Chespin will be either pure Grass or Grass/Ground, Fennekin will be pure Fire, and Froakie will be either Water/Ground or Water/Poison.

                                  I'm afraid of Fire/Psychic, it still looks cute like Victini and same typing and such. :(

                                  Are all men stupid?

                                  That's right.

                                    No need to worry, Fennekin won't be Fire/Psychic because past secondary types for starters are previously physical-based types prior to Gen IV. Psychic was previously special-based.

                                    I wouldn't rule it out, there's always room for change and I'm sure many people would appreciate a Fire/Psychic starter as opposed to a Fire/Fighting type.
